The Secret History of Mongolia

13- 22 July 2020 only USD $2295

This historical and cultural tour in the central region of Mongolia covers many of the most important sites in the country, including valleys inhabited by Mongolia’s most famous hero, Genghis Khan, and by Zanabazar, the first in a line of reincarnate Lamas who were religious and secular leaders until the Mongolian Revolution in 1921.

The Secret History of the Mongols is a chronicle written in the 13th century, covering the origins of the Mongol people, the rise to power and reign of Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century. Nearly 500 years later, Zanabazar was born, a direct descendent of Genghis Khan and great sculptor, painter, architect, poet, scholar, and linguist. Throughout the country there are many references to these two protectors of Mongolia, but nowhere more so than the central provinces, which even prior to Genghis Khan had been the chosen location for earlier Central Asian Empires.

What Our Customers Think

  • "We were very impressed with the organisation, variety of terrain and scenery, the food - delicious ! We think this just might be the best catered trip we have been on - the support, the bikes and their maintenance and the team in general. We will certainly be telling all our friends about how professional this trip was. We had a great time"

    Huw Williams (Wales)
  • We wish that we had more time to spend in Mongolia. What a fascinating place. Not only the Naadam Festival in Ulaanbaatar, but the many mini - Naadam Festivals we encountered in the countryside as well as the people and scenery were fantastic...

    Steve Sidebotham (Delaware, USA)
  • "We really enjoyed our time in Mongolia with the off-road experience and closeness to nature. The experience at the family ger was an emotional one. It struck a chord with me, somewhere deep inside. I could see the sense in their simple way of life, which I have not really been able to see in ours in the west"

    Joakim Hansson (Sweden)
  • "We really enjoyed all aspects of our trip. The itinerary was well organized. We felt like we had a good taste of the country. We especially liked meeting the nomadic family. The accommodations and food were all satisfying as well"
